Fluid dynamics sits at the centre of our lives. The weather we experience, the products we use, the food we eat, cars we drive and the medical care we receive all depend on fluid dynamics.
The ability to measure, model and predict fluid flows is therefore critically important to the innovation of processes and products across almost all industries, and to the monitoring and prediction of environmental processes.
Our new Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics will tackle fundamental and applied problems providing students, from a wide range of academic backgrounds, with the opportunity to undertake cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research.
In years 1-4, you will study a range of modules. The group project will require you to work in teams of 3-5, supervised by staff from different disciplines, and mentored by a collaborator from industry. Your project will involve both experiments and simulations, and your cross-disciplinary team will be expected to utilise the different strengths and backgrounds of its members. The process will include project planning, equipment and resource allocation, technical delivery and dissemination of results.
A degree equivalent to a UK first class honours (or a good upper second class) in science or engineering discipline.
There are 10 funded places available for 2014 entry.
This is fully funded, covering the cost of academic fees and a maintenance grant of £13,726 per annum. EU students will be eligible for a fees only award. Places are available for students who have their own funding.
